Princess Chelsea is taking her 2023 Taite Music Prize-winning album on the road.
In April, the art-pop artist won the prestigious award for her wonderful album Everything Is Going to Be Alright, despite facing strong competition from the likes of The Beths and Fazerdaze.
“She explores the length and breadth of the genre on the album, brandishing baroque touches when she feels like it, performing as ethereally as Kate Bush if the moment calls for it; there hasn’t been a catchier pop song than “Forever Is a Charm” all year. In a just world, Princess Chelsea would be as renowned as Charli XCX.”
Princess Chelsea will now perform the album in full, from start to finish, on a special national tour. The singer-songwriter will perform in Auckland, Whanganui, Paekākāriki, and Wellington this October (see full dates below). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, July 27th at 10am local time.
She’ll be backed by her impressive band, comprised of some of the country’s finest musicians, including Jasmine Balmer (Being.), and Simeon Kavanagh-Vincent (Lucky Boy^).
It was announced last week that Princess Chelsea is nominated for two awards at the upcoming 2023 Panhead Rolling Stone Aotearoa Awards. She’ll compete for Best Record and Best Single (“Forever Is a Charm”), with the winners set to be announced at an invite-only event in Auckland on September 20th.
